Little League was first chartered in Canada in 1951 and was the first International Little League charter ever granted.
Little League® Baseball and Softball is played in approximately 6,500 communities across more than 80 countries around the world, but regardless of where they are played, each of them share the same core mission. Little League believes in the power of youth baseball and softball to teach life lessons that build stronger individuals and communities. Joined together by one common goal, every local league is part of One Team. One Little League.
Volunteers give their time to provide a healthy and wholesome, family oriented activity for the children of their community. Little League Baseball Canada has only two employees. The managers, coaches, league administrators, etc. are all volunteers from within the Canadian Community.
Little League Worldwide is the World’s Largest Organized Youth Sports Program with Millions of Players and More than One Million Adult Volunteers.
There are more than 35,000 youth in Canada who are part of Little League Baseball Canada and who play baseball, softball and challenger during the spring and summer. They are supported by more than 100,000 parents, relatives and people of their communities, big and small. Imagine! Almost 150,000 or more Canadians involved each year in sports that brings out the best in all of us.
